Bergisches Competence Center for CNC and PLC Technology (Throwback 2001)

In May 2001, the “Bergisches Competence Center for CNC and PLC Technology” was inaugurated at BZI Remscheid!

This marked a strong partnership between KELLER, SPINNER, SIEMENS, and BZI, which provided the facilities and infrastructure (and with whom we still maintain a close friendship to this day!).

Together, we introduced state-of-the-art CNC programming into various industries. Thanks to practical courses and innovative tools such as ShopMill and ShopTurn from SIEMENS, skilled workers quickly familiarised themselves with the then-new technology. But it wasn’t just professionals; students also had the opportunity to immerse themselves in the world of metal technology and create their own workpieces.
